Customer Reviews:

  • Misleading description
    Amazon's product description is misleading. While this may be a great filter for B&W film photography, I would not recommend it for color pictures or for digital photography. Effects on B&W digital pictures are not as dramatic as the manufacturer claims. No mention is made that the filter may not produce the same effects on digital pics, so perhaps it doesn't work as well as claimed for film, either. And it does not produce good results with color pictures at all, unless your intent is for the colors in your picture to show up as many different shades of red. Might be a good product, but be careful what you intend to use it for....more info

  • UV Protection Filter
    Superb quality as usual from Tiffen. Unless you are using a professional camera and are looking for professional glass you cannot go wrong with Tiffen.

    Buy 2 and never have to worry again...more info
  • Great filter
    I'm fairly new to the world of photography filters, but of the 10 that I have experimented with, this one is my favorite. Without a doubt, I see improvement in the overall colors of the pictures I have taken. It enhances skin tones but also helps enhance colors in the surrounding area too. Definately a good buy in my opinion!...more info
  • Great Deal For The Price!
    I purchased this set after seaching high and low for the best deal. I was about to just go to my local photography store when, low and behold, I found these here at Amazon. You certainly can't complain about the price!! I priced JUST the UV-Haze filter at my local photo shop, and was rather suprised at the price... JUST FOR IT!! When you considerd that you are ALSO getting a polarizing filter AND, the warming filter, that's when this deal really hits home.

    So, if you're in the market for a GREAT starter set of filters, I can highly reccomend this set....more info

  • Product was good, just wasn't what I ordered.
    I ordered a 52mm UV Protection filter, but got a 58mm filter instead. Packaging read 58mm but the label slapped on the outside said 52mm....more info
  • Excellent Digital Starter Kit
    This was an outstanding value. The kit includes three often needed filters as well as an excellent filter wallet. The wallet itself, along with the included Tiffen Booklet is an added extra value. I found it to be a great value for the money. You get all three for less than the price of one filter and the filter wallet is an added bonus. ...more info
  • It works
    I purchased this item to go with my Nikkor 50mm f/1.8

    It works exactly as it should. I haven't used it much, but i mainly bought it to protect the lens.

  • Tiffen photo filter kit
    Great kit! I haven't used any filters before but I can tell that I'll be using these quite a bit....more info
  • 52mm Protection lens
    I bought this lens for my daughter, then another one for my own Nikon camera also. For the Amazon prices available, it makes no sense NOT to get one of these if you are concerned at all about possible damage to your EXPENSIVE lens. One little "OOPS" would be all it takes to see the value of one of these protective lenses! Well worth the cost!...more info
  • You get what you pay for
    A cheap filter that protects your lens and not a whole lot more. The glares are more prominent than with most multi-coated filters. If you can afford it, go for a multi-coated filter for your lens. Hoya/B+W are worth the extra money paid. When you're willing to pay hundreds for your lenses, why not add a fraction of the price to get a quality filter?
    I own a couple of these filters for emergencies but mostly packed away in boxes....more info
  • A little further insight...
    This is one of the best bargains that i've seen, "essentially" you get 3 filters for the price of one. The image quality with these filters is great, the 812 (warming) filter is by far a favorite giving back the color richness that flash photography so often washes out, that is unless you have the patience for constantly tweaking your flash power. Aside from the 812 the UV protector is basically a clear protective filter. While it obviously has advantages over clear glass, I tend not to think of it as any different. This too is a great filter which I use about half the time because it doesn't affect color hues or change f stop values too greatly while it takes the worry out of carrying the camera around ready for any candid shots that may occur. Finally included is the circular polarizer. This filter adjusts the amount of uv light entering the camera by spinning the filter to the direction the uv rays are entering (or turning the thingy till things look better). This lens is great for sunny days and will take surface glare off lakes and glass making them transparent again. It also makes colors more crisp in general when photographing buildings and other large "reflective" man-made things. So things sound great so far, but now to why I only give this item 4 stars. While Tiffen is known to be one of the best at photo and video filters, they have quality control issues that do no live up to thier reputation. In my case the 812 filter arrived with a discoloration in the glass. While it was didn't hurt image quality, with the flaw being towards the edge of the filter, I none the less didn't want to find a situation in which the flaw would diminish quality. Seeing as it was not amazon's fault my first e-mail went to Tiffen for a replacement which they said they would gladly do, but only after I send them the filter and they recieve it would they ship my replacement (not an option in my circumstances). Instead Amazon's wonderful customer service shown through again, and within 3 days they had replaced the entire set. The second set arrivided without flaw but since my other two filters were in perfect condition I traded just the 812. I havn't had any other issues and i'm very satisfied with my filters. The only other word of warning would be to that of the circular polorizer. While I recieved 2 that were flawless occassionally I have read in reviews customers have received ones that were assembled backwards making the lens useless. A quick way to check to see if your CP is working correctly is to hold it, thread facing yourself, and look at an LCD monitor or TV and spin it until the picture dissapears(obviously working correctly). I still wouldn't pass up this deal knowing what I do now, chances are everything will show up perfectly but none the less if you're concerned order it before you need it and check everything over carefully. Amazon is always the best for returns and will often ship a replacement the next day with overnight shipping.


    And a little further insight...
    I was recently doing some black and white film photography, and decided to use my 812 warming filter as a protective lens as I was carrying 3 lenses with me. Just thought that I would mention that using this filter will produce a "White" sky in some outdoor photographs. The shots were taken with a gradient blue sky to which the entirety showed up white, even on bracketed sets, that should have shown something in one of the series. While itself was a interesting effect for some shots, it mostly just caused me frustration in the darkroom. I just wanted to add this as fair warning. I discovered this on accident, so I don't know if it applies to all sky conditions as I didn't do a lot B&W sky shots, I might test it using Photoshop later as I see they have the 812s effect built in. Anyways, good luck and have fun photoing. ...more info
